I have a pioneer 5100 and Sky+
These 2 systems matched makes an excellent way of saving films and programs.

I record about 5 films per day and a few programs and quickly fill the drive in the sky+ box. I have tried putting a 120GB drive in it but after a while it produces so many bad records that I put the original back in.

My question is can I extend the record time on the 5100 from 6 hours max.

I am out of the hours for 12 hours per day and would like to use the 5100 to record to the hard drive for the full 12 hours from sk+ plus.

at the moment I can only recoird about 3 films at a time, is this possible ?? I have read the manual but cant find anything.

You can use the timer and break it into segments but as far as I can see 6 Hours is the max.

I presume you dont want to lower the quality?

6 hours is the max for one recording, but you can simply set it to record several segments as the other poster suggests....

quality is not really the issue, i almost alway record 6 hours worth of recording on each DVD and I find the quality quite good. I spent many years recording to VCD so the quality even at 6 hours is far better than that.

Thanx for the advance I will try that, I take it you canset the schedualer to record from an AV source?
